Cooperation and commitment               

We believe in that learning is a collective affair. We have a socio-cultural understanding of learning and believe that learning is best achieved through interaction between people and through cooperation and collaboration where the participants have a common responsibility for and commitment to the learning outcome. This understanding is founded upon our values of loyalty, respect and cooperation. Read more about this in our Mission Statement.

Common philosophy

IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

Intercultural understanding and respect

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
